union weighed in today as did russia. russia preparing a u.n. resolution calling for a cease fire. probably our closest ally abroad in matters of war and peace is britain, and they are taking the same line as president obama, although they are being even more direct about it. the foreign secretary saying that hamas bares responsibility for what's going on, but he warns that "a ground invasion of gaza would lose israel a lot of the international support they have in this situation." a ground invasion is more difficult for the international community to sympathize with or support. so the world, at least the world of the united states and our allies is pretty much speaking with one voice here. israel, stop the ground work thing. that's the message from the president. that's the message from allies. that's the message from the international community. that's the message from the europeans. that's the message from the egyptians. and even though our own president is traveling abroad in asia, that's the word from the mouth of our own president. everybody agrees. except for one rogue stat

in washington for too long, a e treaty with russia, two women appointed to the supreme court including the first hispanic supreme court justice in this nation's history. all of that was all accomplished in the first two years of his presidency. and then came the 2010 midterms and the house went to the republicans. and they pledged to oppose everything the president did. that logger heads between the the house republicans and the white house brought us to crises like the debt ceiling fight where republicans refused to raise the debt ceiling even they voted to do so under republican presidents. they refused to do it under this president and brought about the almost unthinkable downgrading of the country's credit rating. even opposition that entractable cannot stop a presidency in its tracks. colin powell's endorsement more than a week ago put part of this legacy of this presidency as in sync as it could get. >> i also saw the president get us out of one war, start to get us out of a second war and didn't get us into any new wars. >> president obama did get all american combat t
